Ain’t No Fun

Straining to be happy—ain’t no fun Smile until my jaws ache Hold my breath until I’m blue—ain’t no way Ain’t no way to keep it natural Not when I live there and you live here Kissing you good night ain’t good night I’d be light about it but it’s not in me It’s not the way that it might be Not when you don’t like it any more that I do When I love you and you love me We could do a lot better for each other If the world were any better than it should be 19 March 1985 Palo Alto
